Good bye and good luck

 

It has been a special pleasure to meet such wonderful young people.  This year has gone by so quickly and the progress you have made is such a massive achievement on your part.  Just look how far you have come!  Give yourselves a pat on the back because you deserve it.  Thank you for making this year so lovely and thank you to all the parents for your support - we couldn't have done it without you.  Thank you boys and girls and good luck in Year 3.

As the weather has been beautiful but super hot today, this afternoon the children spent their time indoors (with every available window and door open) making their very own board game.  Our budding entrepreneurs drew out their games and then added cards and colourful illustrations.

Today has been a day for enjoying the weather sensibly.  The children have had plenty of drinks and cool classrooms to shelter in if the weather became too much for them.  We have played out and had fun with our friends and then had a sneaky trip to the ICT suite to cool down in the air conditioning!

  Better Reading Partnership

It has been a special treat for me to have Wingki all to myself for extra reading for the last ten weeks.  It is always wonderful to see children flourish in all areas but reading really does have a big impact.  Wingki has worked hard and it has been wonderful watching her grow in confidence and progress.  Well done Wingki and keep reading!

     Our beautiful new shed!

 

 

Just look at what our talented children have made!  Our old boring shed has been transformed into a work of art.  They have taken it in turns to paint it so that it is in keeping with our allotment.  Thank you to everyone that worked really hard on this, it looks great. 

Cherokee Little People - Design & Technology

 

As part of our English work on traditional tales, the children have been putting their design and technology skills to the test making their very own traditional native American Indian outfit.  The design and the materials to be used for the outfits was drawn up in their books last week.  Today they put their design to the test and made the outfit!  We will be evaluating our efforts next to see what we might change if we had to do it again.

Aldwyn Allotment

You have all probably noticed by now that something very exciting is happening in the Key Stage 1 playground.  We are making our very own allotment which we hope to have up and running in September.  We have worked hard to dig out and lay the raised beds and attach pallets to the fence ready for herbs and flowers.  We believe we may have unearthed some important Roman artefacts too!  Mr Hyde, our secret weapon, has secured everything in place for us and the children have done a fantastic job painting our old shed.  We hope to grow all manner of different vegetables, honing our green fingered skills along the way. The possibilities are endless and we are all super excited.

Blackpool Zoo Trip

We have had a wonderful trip today to the Zoo.  The weather was wonderful the animals were exciting and the seagulls were a nightmare!  The sea lion show was a real treat and some of our children were brave enough to hold a huge cockroach and an African snail.  Thank you to all the grown ups for the sensible shoes and rucksacks, it really did make the day easier.

The weather is gorgeous and what better way to enjoy it than with some new toys!  Thanks to the funds raised by the PTA, KS1 have some lovely new things such as swing football, Wubbles (I had to google that one), tunnels and connecting tents and other lovely things too.  Enjoy!

The Cherokee Little People

 

The children have been learning about this native American tale and working really hard to make the story their own by changing the characters and other aspects of the story.  Together with their unique tale, they have been practicing their native American artwork.  We have been "cave painting" using charcoal, finger printing concentric circles in the Cherokee style and making our own totem poles!  Some of the children have even had a go at weaving using traditional colours.  Their artwork and writing is now on display in the classroom.

Traditional Tales - Year 4

 

What a treat! Today we had a visit from Year 4 who very kindly brought along their traditional tales to read to us.  As part of their English topic, the children have put their own twist on our well loved traditional tales.  They have typed them up and turned them into books for everyone to enjoy.  It is so lovely to share things across school and our children loved it.  Thank you Miss Sutton.

Congratulations Isabelle for receiving this award.  It is so lovely to see the progress children make throughout the year and we believe that the progress made from the beginning of the year towards the end of the year is amazing.  It still takes a lot of effort of course and Isabelle has worked really hard.  Well done!

We have had a terrific response to the request for books to be brought into school.  It has given the children a wonderful opportunity to put their much loved and often read books to good use by offering to swap them with someone else's.  This morning the children had the opportunity to visit the book collection and choose a new book to take home with them.  This is a great way to get children into reading.  Thank you all for your help with this event.

KS1 Reading Book Librarians

 

To keep our reading books in tiptop condition, we asked for volunteers from Year 2 to spend one break a week inside sorting out our books into the correct colour and number bands.  Thank you to our wonderful librarians (who only started this week) as the shelves are looking fantastic!

Star of the Week award     

There are so many components to learning to read, phonics, blending and segmenting, using punctuation, intonation etc, etc, that it can often be forgotten that it needs to sound good too!  Max has worked incredibly hard on slowing his reading down and using his punctuation to effect and the result is wonderful.  Well done Max.

If ever a role model was needed for the use of exceptional manners you would have to choose

Honey-Mae.  We are very lucky at Aldwyn to have so many children that are courteous and kind but Honey-Mae's consistency makes her a shining example to us all.  A very well deserved award.

There is nothing more wonderful than showing off someone's talent and I think we have definitely found one of Isabella's.  My apologies as the photo does not do her handwriting justice but if you could see it first hand and note all the punctuation she has used (in the correct places) you would be amazed.  This really is exceptional.  Well done Isabella.

The Daily Mile

children fit for life

 

Today the children have taken part in the Daily Mile initiative being adopted by schools throughout the UK to improve the physical, emotional and social health and well being of their children. The Daily Mile is a fantastic way to allow children of all ages or ability the opportunity to be involved in a fun daily exercise.  As part of this, Aldwyn children have taken to the playground to boost their brain power in the classroom as well as their physical selves too!

City of Trees

 

Today some of the children from each key stage were taken to Lees Park for a very important job.  As party of the Manchester City of Trees initiative, which is an exciting movement set to re-invigorate Greater Manchester's landscape by transforming underused, unloved woodland by planting a tree for every man, woman and child who lives there, the children were tasked with planting 100 trees of varying species.  It was hard work but very rewarding!

Friday afternoon activities

After a hard week at work we all deserve a "crafty" afternoon!  The children are painting but with a difference.  We have cut up various vegetables for texture printing and we are also making symmetry pictures.  The old favourites of Lego, colouring and imagination play are also available.

Congratulations Emily on receiving this award.  It can be tricky sometimes when lots of friends all want to do different things at once and it can lead to fall-outs and upsets.  Well this week Emily has shown her friends that you can still care for each other even if you are playing with someone else!  Thank you Emily for being a good friend.

Every now and again an exceptional piece of work is produced.  All our children try incredibly hard and this week Isabella has gone above and beyond with her wonderful story.  It is a real challenge for our children as not only do they have to think of the theme of their work, they have to think about capital letters, cursive script (where all the joins are), finger spaces, punctuation and getting full stops in!  All our children can be super proud of their efforts and none more so than Isabella this week.  Well done!

What a beautiful celebration to be part of.  The children have worn red and we have heard stories and traditional tales of why this is such an important time in the Chinese calendar.  During assembly we had an exciting dragon parade through the hall, lead by children with traditional lanterns.  In class we have made lots of crafts from a lucky cat to a dragon of our own.  The children will bring home a short story explaining why people wear red and set off fire crackers, a fortune cookie and a lucky red envelope kindly given to us by Wingki's mum!  Thank you for making this celebration such fun.

Design and Technology - Model Village

 

This week in design and technology the children have been designing and building their very own building to go into our village.  We discussed which kinds of buildings would make up the perfect village and the children drew a design, talked about the materials they would use to build their building and then built it!!  Take a look.

Let it snow!

 

YAY!  The snow's here!  As it doesn't come round very often, when the snow finally does arrive we do our best to make the most of it and yesterday was no exception.  The children bundled up and off they went into the great white playground!  Lots of fun was had building snowmen and pulling each other around on sledges.  Unbelievably the boys still managed a game of football!

Our local area

 

As part of topic with Mrs Clark, we went for a walk of our local area pinpointing certain structures on a map.  The children had a wonderful time orienteering around the streets near school, helping each other ascertain which buildings or areas were denoted on the map.  We definitely have some great map readers and they all enjoyed leading the lesson and taking the teachers for a lovely walk!

Star of the Week award

 

Congratulations Inaaya.  You work so incredibly hard and Mrs Eastwood has been singing your praises.  She has seen your work improve so much and says that you work more and more independently.  Well done!

If you ever need a hand in a crisis, Lola is your lady!  She stepped up to the mark when we needed a last minute replacement for one of our speaking parts in the play.  She not only remembered her own lines, she remembered the ones she had only had about five minutes to learn before we went in the hall!  Well done Lola you are a superstar!!
